Although not retro, the 3DS is a great system for retro enthusiasts


Can you still charge it while it’s in that monstrosity? I’m very tempted…


Yup! I never take it out of that grip. I’ve actually been looking for a universal case that will hold the grip and 3ds so I can toss it in my back pack.



I was so sad when I exchanged my original 3DS because my Mario Kart 3DS wheel grip had to go with it.

That MH grip seems to be for N3DSXL? Is there a grip for regular sized New 3DS?


There isn’t the awesome monster hunter grip. Other companies may have made one but Hori didn’t make a N3DS (small) grip.

I can’t understate that the MH Grip for the N3DS LL (XL) is the most comfortable grip I’ve ever used and basically made this console viable instead of pain.


Disappointing news, but there seem to be a good number of N3DS grips so I’ll take a punt on one.


What’s good/unique about the MH Grip is that is has neoprene sponges that hold the 3DS in place. I really like that all the main contact points had this. It may not be as big of an issue since the N3DS isn’t glossy like the XL/LL are. My N3DS XL remains scratch free and I am trying to keep it that way.


Yes, the original 3DS Mario Kart wheel used the same construction.


Are all the monster hunter grips of the same quality? Looks like there is one for 4g as well as X.


I listed the box in my post. It was for X and the shape is different. Could be 4 is good but I wouldn’t know.

Edit: 4G has a thumb pad attachment for none New 3DS consoles.

Edit # 2: XX Grip is the same as mine but comes with a weird kickstand attachment.


So there’s a Nintendo Direct today with new 3DS announcements. I’m guessing those will be first party in nature since other publishers have moved on to mobile, and Atlus surely can’t be supporting the system after Persona Q2.

Is there still hope for 3D Virtual-Boy Wario Land?


Hope is a mistake.
